Some of those who recovered from the initial virus effects continue to suffer long-term symptoms that are yet to be fully understood.Study has found a significant rise in people searching Google for anxiety symptoms during the pandemic. Google searches for ‘worry,’ ‘anxiety,’ and therapeutic techniques to manage worry and anxiety have increased during the pandemic.Mental health experts are saying there is significant increase in other mental health  such as depression, loneliness, suicidal ideation,community violence, and complex bereavement.For each person that dies of COVID, approximately nine close family members are affected, and people will carry that grief for a long time.”said Dr Michael Hoerger

No one is safe until everyone is safe.
Wear mask, maintain physical distance, wash hands and be smart about crowds,
face coverings (nose & mouth) should be part of new normal.

Smoking in any form at this time should be banned in public places as it may increase the spread of virus

Teamwork and feeling of openness is important for winning this Corona war
